The Know Your Biomarker Advocacy Toolkit was created to help you join the global effort to ensure all colorectal cancer patients have access to biomarker testing.
Biomarkers and biomarker testing are a fundamental part of precision medicine for colorectal cancer. Biomarkers provide vital information used to determine prognosis and risk of recurrence, guide treatment decisions, evaluate treatment response, and monitor for recurrence after treatment. Biomarker testing can help assess the need for adjuvant chemotherapy after surgery.
We have information about
• what a biomarker is
• how biomarkers are used in colorectal cancer care
• who should have biomarker testing
• specific colorectal cancer biomarkers • the impact each biomarker can have on treatment
